Improving Well-Being with the Healthways Innergy Program

Posted July 20, 2015 | 7925 Views

Ken Partridge, an assistant manager for FedEx Office in Naples, FL, knew he needed to make a change. He had a family history of health issues, including diabetes, and as a former culinary school student, he has always struggled with his love of food. He began his weight-loss journey in May 2014 but hit a wall and needed help taking the next step. So he took his Healthways Well-Being Assessment (WBA) last fall and then began working with a Healthways coach through the Innergy Healthier Weight Program. The results have been life-changing for Ken – not only is he down more than 70 pounds, he’s also happier, healthier and has more energy and focus at work to take better care of his customers. Ken shares his story in hopes of motivating others to make small steps to improve their well-being.

Need help taking the first step? Ken took the WBA and was able to take advantage of the programs Healthways has to offer, and you can, too. The next WBA period has begun, so take the WBA so you can begin participating in Healthways programs including well-being coaching, the Innergy Healthier Weight Program, and the QuitNet Tobacco Cessation Program. Like last year, each eligible employee and spouse/domestic partner who completes the WBA by November 4, 2015, will receive a credit of $100 to their Health Reimbursement Account in 2016.
